Re: real estate prices in Canada sustainable?

We had a double whammy in Toronto, possibly a triple whammy.

First up they bought in much tougher legislation on short term rentals that put a lot of Air B'nB stock on to the market.

Secondly...

Re: real estate prices in Canada sustainable?

It sounds like your realtor is baiting you to sell more than anything.

Rent prices in the waterfront communities are down 30%+ in a year and at current trajectory will hit 2013 levels in a couple...

Re: real estate prices in Canada sustainable?

Wouldn't it make sense to continue with the $1500 rent and put the difference into an index linked ETF or mutual fund. That would almost certainly make more money over 25 years once you take out...

Re: Prince Harry and Meghan ......

Stop it!

When people talk like they know the House of Windsor it's creepy.

She's not many points is she?

I've never played the game but surely you are looking for slightly younger to really capitalize.

I'm actually glad to be in Canada for a change- it sounds like...

Re: Prince Harry and Meghan ......

Nope. However at least there is some sort of system in place to elect a Pope and when he dies he is not replaced by someone in his bloodline.

The Royal Family essentially provides Britain with...

Smile Re: 10 years in

Congratulations! Initially read this as "making my own bed" and thought wow you're lazy :-)

I still wish they sold squash here. I think I miss that more than anything else grocery.

Re: Prince Harry and Meghan ......

Nothing would be lost.

The history is there to be examined, studied and analyzed.

The Queen has nothing to gain from political bias which is the ultimate bias in itself. She’s “looked after”...

Re: Canadian whisky

I had to turn.

It's not that I don't love beer, but the absence of a gym during the pandemic made the weekly intake difficult to wear on the body. I have the whiskey with a lot of rocks so it...

Re: Prince Harry and Meghan ......

I'd disagree here.

Moving forward Britain's progress and ingenuity is not tied to the Royal Family in anyway and should not be- it's simply amazing that Canada and Australia haven't done away with...

Re: Deciding between Canada and Australia

On the basis of this post if you have a choice take Australia.

You're unlikely to get a higher salary in Canada. I'd say they're typically lower here with most every day items costing more before...

Re: Moving to Canada

Stay in Australia- if you want a better climate move to Melbourne. If you want better job access move to Sydney.

With 10 to 15 vacation days in most jobs, low salaries and the most overpriced real...

Re: Investment Ideas

Airlines are something to buy now.

No one will but those that do will win big.

I'm going for a couple of Electric vehicle plays.

Re: Canadian whisky

This behaviour doesn't surprise me. You only have to watch Braveheart for the umpteenth time to see the Scots ****ing over the Scots before the English outsmart them.

Re: What's going to cost you more — and less in 2021

Streaming (such as Netflix) has been creeping up a while. I pay more now for TV content than ever- although I have nought else to do so it's easy to swallow.

As always I'm watching the beer price...

That's exceptional TV.

The director is a genius.

Best of luck with the Citizenship!
